Why are they The Earl Brothers?

I promised I would ask why The Earl Brothers have their name, when none is related, and I did.

Robert “Earl” Davis wrote back:

“Well the first thing that comes to mind is ‘why not’?

“It seems easy enough.

“My middle name is EARL and I’m the one that started the group. It actually started 20 years ago, but that’s another story..

“I write most of the songs and keep the signature sound going, regardless of who’s in the band … I’m the keeper of the Earl Brothers’ flame … and the leader of the pack…

“Earl Brothers … Brothers in my common cause of “original hillbilly mountain music” Earl Brothers style!!”

So there you have it.
